Splendid news, we see,

Splendid news, we see,

From the world of

Tax and VAT:

Accountants are

Doing... poetry!

All right, laugh and sneer

You literary gentry,

But go on,

You find a rhyme

For double entry.

Number crunchers?

Sandwich lunchers?

Suspicious hole

In the audit marked

Heart, Soul?

A lie! They're just shy:

Feeling runs high,

Passion does burn,

And that's only over

Your tax return.

Calculators with emotions!

Subtractors so fine!

We'd like to say more, but

Sadly, this is the bottom line.
